Modern Nomads was birthed out of a desire to capture a cultural heritage in the process of being lost forever and help the Somali people remember and treasure their past.
There are few nomadic societies that have been catapulted into the twenty-first century as dramatically as the Somali. Twenty years of war have scattered hundreds of thousands of Somalis all over the world. People who were born in small desert villages are now young professionals in London, Toronto, or Minneapolis. As their large families often live in a dozen different countries, many Somalis live uniquely international lives as modern nomads.
Filled with stories of indigenous Somali life, interviews with artists and photo essays, you will discover a new perspective on this often underrepresented people group.
